I went here with my 5 year old because of a few pediatric issues and I am glad I chose Homestead. I had heard that they are pretty fast with their pediatric services and that day I actually found it to be true.

When it comes to children, they are pretty fast yet do a good job about it too. The doctors give extra care and attention to the little ones and the nurses are very nice to the kids. I am happy to have found a place where they don’t intimidate the kids.

I would definitely recommend this place and especially their pediatric department.

The place is not bad and one can expect them to provide basic good facilities. The doctors are good and they listen to your problems well before drawing any conclusions about your medical issues.

But what I was definitely not impressed with was their ER. They have extremely long wait times and still there is absolutely no guarantee that one would be seen. I have seen people wait for hours on end if they do not have a life threatening emergency.

You will only be attended to on priority if your life is at stake else be prepared to sit and waiting in a long waiting hall but there will be others like you to keep you company.

I hate this hospital because of the shitty staff working there. They are inconsiderate and will try and kick you out of the hospital as soon as they can. All they want is your money ad once they have it, they treat you like shit.

Please do not make the mistake of going here if you are in pain. They have the nerves to watch you in pain and do nothing about it only to ultimately kick you out. I never seen people like them who are so damn inhuman. I begged for help and all they did was to be rude to me.

One day my dad developed a severe chest pain. I suspected if it was a heart attack, so I rushed him to this hospital since it was close by. I was all freaked out and wanted help but nobody in this hospital helped me that day.

The moment we reached there, I asked an attendant to help me take my dad into the hospital. But all he did was point towards a wheelchair and asked me to do things by myself. I requested him to help but he insisted that I do things myself.

He could see that I was a frail teenage girl and couldn’t manage it all by myself but he just stood there like a statue. I then somehow managed to get dad into the wheelchair and pushed it hard to get to the ER. It was not just this man, there were others around but nobody even bothered to help.

I was in tears and fear gripped me because my dad was in tremendous amount of pain and without any help, I was struggling and taking all the time in the world to get him to the ER. I finally had to yell at the receptionist so that someone would actually help me.

I am hell disappointed with the services of this hospital. They do not even care about their patients and all they want is our money. Such a crapo attitude…….

The hospital is huge but I don’t think a patient would benefit from the size of this stupid place. After all, its there just for pomp and show! I have come across the most horrible of staffs and services in this place. One day I walked in because of extreme pain and I was crying in agony but all they did was make me wait in the ER room along with other patients.

A few people who waited along tried to pacify me but my cries could not melt the hearts of the hospital staff. Finally, a nurse came and she drew my blood in the waiting area. Like seriously!!! Who does that!!! Couldn’t they have offered me a room in this big a hospital!

And when I was finally seen by a doctor, he seemed clueless about what to do and how to handle the whole situation or what medicines to prescribe.

All that wait and insult for no results finally!

I would ask you all to save your time and go elsewhere than coming here.
